Can't find a version of Microsoft What? Are you using a Full Version of Office 2007, or are you using the upgrade Version? In order to use an upgrade version, you would have to have a version of Office that you can use to perform the upgrade. If a Microsoft Product qualifies for an upgrade, you would either have to have an older version, such as Office 2002, or Office 2003, or any version of a qualifying Microsoft Product installed to be able to use the upgrade version. If you have an Upgrade Version, but you do NOT have a qualifying product installed, Office 2007 Standard would NOT install, because it can't find a qualifying product.

(Example: I have a Version of Office 2002 - In order for me to use it, I have to have a qualifying product to have it install. I also have a Version of Frontpage 2000 and 2003. If I Install the qualifying products (FP2000 or FP2003) First, then Office 2002 will install with no problem.)

If you are using a Full Version of Office 2007 Standard, you should be able to install with no problem.

Good Luck!!
